Difference Between Maintenance & Repair

No, it's not the same

Maintenance is something you do to maintain an item and keep it running in top notch condition. Repair is something performed when an item breaks, usually from not being properly maintained.

The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from motorcycle to motorcycle. You will find the schedule for your motorcycle in your owner’s manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your motorcycle is performing as it should.

Repair Services

We do repairs on most parts

Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your motorcycle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your motorcycle. Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your motorcycle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your motorcycle.

Replacing of parts

Worn or broken parts need replacement rather than "fixing" up. We replace parts with vendor recommended parts.

Disk & brake replacement

Worn or chipped brake disks need to be replaced, and not just skimmed or "fixed up". This can be dangerous and can be the cause of accidents.

At A R Developments, we offer Repair Services that keep your motorcycle running as it should.


Service warranty

We can take care of any maintenance, service, accessory installs, performance upgrades, or even customization while your bike is here to keep the down time to a minimum. We offer a 90 day guarantee on our labor. Parts installed during the repair will carry the manufacturer warranty:


The modern motorcycle uses suspension to accomplish several things, it provides a smooth comfortable ride absorbing bumps and imperfections in the road. It also allows the rider to fine tune the machine to give him/her better control over the machine when riding.
